    That is great!!!! :aok

    Do you know if the exp can take 0-5V CV? I think I asked and it couldnt... but I may be confabulating?

    Unfortunately I don't know. The manual just says 10kOhm-100kOhm, and I'm using a cheap m-audio one which works fine.

    Any opinions on the best IC muff (besides an '78 EHX BMP)? So far the pedals I'm aware of are:
    1. Blakemore Effects DreamsICle.
    2. Wren and Cuff Eye See Pi.
    3. Caroline Shigeharu.
    4. Daredevil '78.
    5. Made by Mike Dream Box/'78 IC Muff.
    6. EHX IC muff collab with Billy Corgan, whenever that gets released.
    And since there's a sale on - would the BAT Son of Pharaoh get me anywhere near the sound of a '78?

    That was great! I tend to apologize for many of my messes too, but so love wallowing in filthy, mangled dirt. I've almost hit "buy" a few times for the Fuzz Bear and especially the FUBÄR, but I am currently more than delighted with the extra range and interesting artifacts I'm getting from my Fat Fuzz Factory, and it's tiny; FFF sent my Fuzz Probe packing.

    And dang if I didn't add COD LIVER to 208, so here's the "final" setlist and it should be up at BandCamp later today, hopefully. One of my finer messes! *-)

    I plugged a Bit Commander into my Harmonic Transformer and the resulting sound was so brutal that it knocked my power out! Or maybe it was the snow that knocked a tree onto the power lines.... but I think it was the gated sub octaves

    I've always loved the Frantone Cream Puff.

    Yessss, wallow in the filth young Luke.... Haha.

    I checked out COD LIVER earlier today when it came up in my soundcloud feed. Great stuff... It's always cool to hear how other peeps (ab)use their Ricochets.

    The FFF has been on my want list for a long time.

    I've never had an IC Muff (yet), but I don't think the Pharaoh cops that particular vibe at all. Pharaoh is more fat, less scooped.

    I will for sure get the EHX version when it comes out!

    That was my concern - I already have an EQD Acapulco Gold and, while it's not a fuzz, it has a full on fat sound which is pretty wide open. I'm looking for an IC muff for some contrast, and I just love that sound regardless. The closest I get to something I'd buy is the Wren and Cuff, but I'm just exploring options. I'll inevitably end up buying the EHX version when it's released too!

    Check out Mojo Hand FX 1978 and 1979.

    The 1978 is 3-knob with no tone bypass switch.

    The 1979 has a separate footswitch and level knob for the tone bypass, which I haven’t seen on any other Muffs. I own this version and it’s very nice.

    Man, that's exactly what I want. I'd always wondered why no one included a level knob for the tone bypass to account for the volume increase. Cheers!

    That is nice, but won't smoking make monkeys go extinct faster?

    hey, guys, 2 q's, re: IC Muff-like fuzzes:

    1) do either the MojoHand 1979 or Frantone Cream Puff take 9v batteries?
    and:
    2) did Wren&Cuff discontinue the original Eye See Pi?

    1) My original Cream Puff does, can't say for sure about the reissue

    2) Appears as if they have, but you should reach out to Matt

    3) Also, this's what I'm listening to right now:

    1. There is no 9v battery connection inside the 1979
    2. I believe they had to rename it after a friendly chat with EHX (https://www.wrenandcuff.com/eye-see-78)
